Re: When did af return?

Yesterday. LO is 15 1/2 months old. I was expecting it, actually, because I had clear signs of ovulation (lots of EWCM. SUPER tender when nursing) about 11 days before.


I'm blessed to be a preacher's wife and the mama of a happy boy (8/2011)

Re: When did af return?

With all of mine it was about when the baby went for about 6 hours at a stretch without nursing. My daughter was about 7 months (doc said "failure to thrive" and supplemented with formula, which did us in for nursing). 8 or 9 months, I think, for my oldest boy... My middle son was about 11 months (actually, I think it was right before he turned 11 months). I'm not sure if this one is going to be the same way. I've felt crampy and had some premenstrual symptoms, but nothing yet. With all three of them it started out like a regular to light period, but I had KILLER PMS! Actually, usually it's not PMS so much for me, since it's about one or two days before and then about halfway through my cycle. Ugh...I'm not looking forward to that first period! It's killer!

17 months. We co-slept and nursed on demand until 14 months. We then very slowly night weaned. AF returned 4 weeks after DD was completely (8pm-5am) night weaned. As others have said, the first one was terrible. But now they're a little lighter than before.

Re: When did af return?

Just shy of 17 months. But I can't say if I actually ovulated or not because it really was just light spotting for three days. We want to have another baby though, and because of insurance difficulties, would like to get pregnant within the next couple of months or this next baby is going to be very expensive. So I'm hoping that my body can get back in the hang of things quickly now that I see we're moving that way.

After I quit pumping at work so DS would have been about 18.5 months old.

Hoping it works for me again! Having no AF for almost 2.5 years between pg and nursing was a fabulous gift.
